We seek applicants who will welcome the challenges and rewards of serving on the faculty of a growing college located in a dynamic and supportive high technology business community. The appointment would be at the level of assistant or associate professor and will start in August 2013.

Responsibilities

Conduct and publish high quality scholarly research in a collegial environment in which both intra- and inter-disciplinary collaboration is valued, teach undergraduate and graduate courses in programs that emphasize both rigor and experiential learning, participate actively in the profession, and take part in university service and outreach to the public. 

Qualifications

Applicants must have (or expect to receive by the start of Fall term 2013) a Ph.D. in Information Systems or a related field and a primary research and teaching interest in the area of information assurance and security.

Strong potential for publishing high quality research is required. Professional experience and certification are pluses.
